It really seems people don't know much about biotic combos though which means I tend to have to set my own up. Its also annoying that I warp a guy in the middle of a bunch of others and then people kill him instead of letting me blow them all up. Don't have many weapons unlocked so I'm still using the Avenger on my sentinel and my soldier. It works pretty well though so I can't really complain about that. Completing even a bronze mission gets a TON of exp. I mean my level 1 sentinel is level 7 now and I completed one mission and failed another on Wave 10 (arg!!). Are the silver/gold missions just much tougher enemies earlier on, or is it like a difficulty increase where they all do more damage and such too?
Leveling gets a lot slower the higher level you get. My Infiltrator is level 18 right now, it's going to take at least 4 or 5 more rounds before I hit 19. It's something like 500,000 XP per level once you get to 16 I think.
As for the difficulty, basically the enemies get more health/shields/barriers, there are more enemies, and the enemy uses better tactics the higher the difficulty. On Bronze enemies tend to die pretty fast and it really only gets hairy on wave 10. Silver is a pretty big step up. I've only ever completed one Silver mission successfully. I noticed a lot more flanking compared to Bronze, and enemies also take a lot more to kill. It's often easier to stick with the group on Silver, that way you don't get overwhelmed and killed, whereas it doesn't really make a difference on Bronze as long as you're smart about it.
